Tres Chic!

Valerie Galloway's passion for all things Post-War Parisian—from French New Wave cinema to glamorous shots of her mother and her aunt—give her oeuvre a certain jeu d'esprit that is simply magnifique! Her pert and utterly posh characters exhibit the artist's ardor for costume and pattern and allow her to interpret and recapture her most frequented flicks as well as moments from her childhood.

This high-quality giclee print of Valerie's original watercolor painting depicts a blushing femme fatale whose mile-high bouffant is decked out with an energetic sprinkling of curlicues and paisley prints. Featuring Valerie's love of pattern, detail, and the characteristically French sense of fashion, this style savvy maiden can add the certain je ne sais quois to the art lover or ardent Francophile's home. Printed on archival, Museo Portfolio Rag. Hand-signed and dated by the artist. Made in Arizona.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Valerie Galloway

I'm influenced by old family photos, especially ones of my French mother and her sister. They always looked so glamorous with their fabulous hairdos from the 1960's. I'm also inspired by French New Wave cinema, and old American TV shows from the 1960's and 70's. Recreating some of these looks is a way for me to recapture moments from my childhood, and I relish enveloping myself in the spirit of that era.

    Comments about HELLO GORGEOUS - VALERIE GALLOWAY:

    What a great product! As a self described Budget Shopper, it took me a long time to finally purchase this picture for myself but I'm so glad that I finally pulled the proverbial trigger. Every time I walk by the picture, it makes me smile a little. The detail in her hair is just great.

    Uncommon Goods tends to have inventory of a product for a while (1-2 years) but there comes a day that they no longer carry the product. I knew if I wanted this picture in my life, I would need to act sooner than later. I think it's been about a year since I initially spotted it.

    I thought I might not like the stark white matte but it all works well together. Love love love this piece of art!

        This piece was my birthday/Christmas present from my husband this year. It is beautiful, vibrant, and captivating. The framing is perfect for it and I feel blessed to have received it. Thank you for your artistry and for inspiring my husband to bring this beauty home.
